Many runners dedicated their May training recovery from their April races. Recovery is just as important as training and racing, especially if your goal is long-term progress. Others are sharpening for June races, including 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons, or focusing on building a strong base for fall races. Congrats to everyone on a strong May!
If you are interested in coaching, I do have spots open for summer and fall races. I would love to work with you! Please learn more about my coaching services and contact me here.
